Funniest scene of the most recent series of the best show on TV right now. Any other fans here?

Can’t believe no one else here seems to be watching this.

If you’ve not yet seen it, both seasons are now back up on Sky box sets and Now TV in the UK

Huge fan. Can’t wait for season three. Seems like Roman and Gerri are gonna make a play for control.

Best thing on TV by several miles at the moment. Really looking forward to seeing S1 and S2 again. God only knows when we'll get to see S3.

If you've not already watched this, you really are missing out.

We're looking for a new series to get our teeth into and I see Succession is on NowTV. It better be good.

How are you getting on? I'm halfway through rewatching series one. Not since The Sopranos has a TV series been better cast - Brian Cox, Matthew McFadyen and Kit Culkin are especially brilliant.

Yeh - it's good.

We're trying to work out who is the most objectionable character.
It's tough!

I think Kit set the bar very, very high in episode 1 when he offered the kid US$1,000,000 if he could hit a home run only to rip the cheque up in front of his face when he fell a couple of feet short

I did check when it was supposed to be set as I thought the kid would grow up and take his revenge 10 years down the line. Still, he got a nice watch out of it.

My pleasure. Glad you enjoyed it. I've just finished watching it again and enjoyed it every bit as much second time around

So many terrific lines: "He thinks Plato was one of the Marx Brothers"

Amazing to think it was created by a Brit - Jesse Armstrong of Peep Show, Fresh Meat and the Thick of It - fame.

And possibly no one in the history of the world ever has managed to make the words "fuck off" sound quite so full of
menace as Brian "Virgin Media!" Cox.

In the unlikely event you disagree, please refer to Mr. Cox's succinct and pithy epithet above*


* Not "Virgin Media", obvs
